Captain Eezmaira Sazzea was among the first group of Malaysian women selected to pursue professional maritime training at the Akademi Laut Malaysia (ALAM, also known as the Malaysia Maritime Academy) when the academy first expanded its Maritime Education and Training courses to include female cadets back in 2006.
With her latest appointment, Captain Eezmaira Sazzea is now part of an exclusive global group of female seafarers who are currently making waves as Captains helming merchant vessels of various types across the world.
Eezmaira’s maiden voyage as a captain began on 13 August 2021 on Seri Bijaksana, an LNG carrier. Expressing pride, Captain Sazzea perceives the appointment as a recognition of her abilities and professionalism.
Eaglestar views the appointment of Captain Eezmaira Sazzea as a testament to its commitment towards gender equality principles in various areas of its human capital strategies and operations.
Eaglestar in a post said that this progressive action will further attract more women towards the maritime career, drive advancement, and positively shaping the future of the maritime industry locally and internationally.
